Who hasn’t waved their arms dramatically along to a symphony playing on the radio? Bring your classical music fantasy to life! In celebration of Culture Days’ 5th anniversary, over a dozen professional and amateur orchestras, big bands and choirs are remounting Conduct Us in communities across Ontario. The public are invited to step up to the podium and pick up the baton for a once-in-a-lifetime chance to lead a live ensemble. Conduct Us will be a thrilling experience for all ages.

"I do think that we are innately creative, all people no matter how much we often believe that we aren't.. we are designed with innate creativity we unlearn it so quickly...there are endless ways you can experience creativity that expression is healthy and important for your well being." Words spoken by fellow creator, fellow YAAP artist and fellow friend Amber Aasman. Words that I keep close to heart in my own journey with I.AM. It is a true blessing to witness Wild Blue Yonder into its journey, capturing gems of Canadiana wilderness through their work. Shout out to Ontario Culture Days for connecting our worlds together :)
